Bicarbonate of soda is used as a raising agent in some breads and cakes

Description

Bicarbonate of soda (also known as baking soda) is an alkali often used to raise soda breads and full-flavoured cakes such as gingerbread, fruit cake, chocolate cake and carrot cake. It needs an acid (as well as moisture) to activate it so is often combined with cream of tartar, yoghurt, buttermilk or milk. Bicarbonate of soda is also often used as a component in homemade cleaning products for your home. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place
